Ontarians are rallying to say #HandsOffTheGreenbelt and fight the provincial government's other attacks on the environment!

Over the past year there have been more than 135 rallies and events all across the province! Hundreds of thousands of people have called or written to their MPP. Together, we convinced the provincial government to change course on their attack on the Greenbelt.


However, the fight continues:

  • Wetlands, Forests and Conservation Lands are still at risk because of Bill 23
  • The province still expects municipalities to carry through with forced boundary expansions designed to increase sprawl
  • The Bradford Bypass and Highway 413 still threaten the Greenbelt

Click the button below to send a letter to your MPP demanding that they roll back the REST of the Sprawl Scandal.

Click this button to send a letter to MPPs demanding the cancellation of the expensive and destructive Highway 413.
